New Post Coming Re: Lynching

I have an extensive list of blacks who were murdered in the Old South and the New South, including recent actions by various hate groups etc. The interesting thing that I have learned is that white women were frequently banished from the community for consorting with Negroes, especially men, and they were often killed outright--usually shot--by their loving husbands. The list of Black women who were lynched was not as great but it is no less devastating. I will do an article on this next week just to show that if you were not a white male--you were not safe and even some of them were hanged along with their slaves for consorting. The Indians, Mexicans and certain English castes were also lynched and murdered solely on physical makeup. Will have this out next week.. Ra

Jesse Washington

This past August while i was in TN, we visited the Black Civil Rights Museum in Memphis. This museum is the hotel where Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated.

I saw a newspaper clipping that hit rather close to home for me.

In 1916, Jesse Washington hanged and burned right under Mayor Dollin's office window. The mayor expressed outrage. He was concerned about the tree being destroyed.

The reason this tough home for me. My family is from Waco. At the time of this crime, my grandmother would have been 11- 12 years old. I had never heard of any stories from my relatives. So I was quite surprised to see Waco recorded on the walls of the museum. i only thought of Waco being in recent news.

Yes Ra, this has touched every state in the US.

Just sharing.
